This is the Section called Stanly Falls at Ioco - used in the 1980 World Round - Outlaw Sponsored the section., hence the big sign at the top. - The pic was taken by Harlow Rankin.

I think you could say that most of the top riders in the World, began by riding Trials - Roger was  a 2 time Champion of Belgium  and is seen here on a Greeves ( Sorry no idea who took the pic)

And here is Giacomo Agostini trying a Sherpa T.  ( For our younger readers - He was a many time World Road race Champ)

And a Flashback to 1975 and the first ever FIM World Round in Canada. ( Yes it was 69 miles long with 40 sections - - We managed to get close to a 100 Volunteers for checking duties )  Not sure where this result list came from, but there are a number of rider’s names misspelled   ( Sorry Roger !!)

But just look at the number of regular Canadian Club riders listed - How times have changed.

Sad to see another British Motorcycle Factory move to Thailand !! - This just after the latest shut down of Norton with stories of fraud, leaving workers without their pension money.

Another February snow pic - this from 2015 & shows Matt trying my Evo 200 demo at Bear Ridge - he later bought one for himself - but this bike was sold to a guy in Winnipeg.

I see that the UK continues to have  bad flooding - some of the worst spots are close to where we lived in North Wales, with many roads impassable.

Looking out our office window today - it’s a dreary day with a mix of snow & rain.
